Per Webster's - "Indented with small concave curves". Took more time to post than to look up. :grin:

I bought one. Plug broke off in horn. the horn is only 9 inches long. Bad decision yes They offered to take it back.but you got a paper with it telling you how to return it if you had problems, so it is a wall hanger.

Not sure I understand your post. If they said to send it back you should do just that.

I'm not sure how an Indian cow horn can be any more cheap junk than an American cow horn... Regardless, I've found a much nicer and more accurate horn, albeit one quite a bit pricier. (thanks Loyalist Dave for the link :thumbsup: )

I would be kinda surprised if those cow horns came from India.

Due to the Hinduism in that country, most people there think a cow is almost sacred and won't do anything that could harm them.
In fact, in many of the Indian States, eating or possessing cow meat (beef) is illegal.

Now, I'll admit many of the Native American Indian tribes in the US would be more than happy to eat beef and carve cow horns but somehow I don't think they made those horns either. :rotf: :grin:

More likely they are from Mexico (or further south). Stumpy, thick, ugly horns in my opinion - I like the longer graceful ones with a twist from US cows.

I got October Country's pioneer horn recently and boy is it ever a peach:



LOVE it. Super well made and pretty. Didn't break the bank either.
